The E5332 has a TS9 style connector and there are lots of choice with regards to antennas.

We have two on our website -the window mount is very popular but will probably be more than your MiFi device cost as its also 4G ready.

Have you tried putting your MiFi device in a Tupperware box and sticking it on the roof? That can often help more than you'd expect! :)

If Three was an issue, why not try another provider - like EE as their packages are the same as Three for PAYG. You tend to find that where one network has poor coverage, another network has better coverage and so your money might be better off invested in an alternative SIM rather than an antenna at this stage.

Our window mount antenna (£69.99 on the 3/4G page) is our best selling antenna presently.

An alternative to the Tupperware box on the roof is a plastic bag tied to a flag pole (a tip from Jim). I tried that the one time I had problems with 3 (last year at Malvern show) and it worked fine.

The point about alternative SIMS is a good tip as well - except that I got an EE one and found the coverage pathetic compared to 3 :D

Thanks to this thread I have internet connection. My old mifi is flying high. Surprisingly though the battery is supposed to last 4.5hrs. I put it up there over 8rs ago , now woke upand I'm still connected.. Perhaps it puts itself to sleep too.

I had a few issues trying to get 3 working when I bought the unit at Malvern. Eventually thanks to Addie's patience we got it all going with EE

It all works very well, discovered that Vodamoan data is dreadful but EE is pretty good so far
